Over the course of two semesters we have been able to publish articles on varying topics and we couldn’t be more grateful for the success of the magazine. We have over 60 articles published and over 6,000 views stemming from 27 different countries. As we hit the one-year mark, we wanted to offer our sincere gratitude to all of our readers, writers, editors, staff (past and present) and our lovely founder, Amanda Castro. It has been our pleasure to be a part of this magazine and continue her vision.
This year sees a couple of definitive changes, Isabelle Hajek has graduated and Samuel Weinmann has been appointed as the new Head Editor. We will also be rebranding into the Horseshoe Magazine in the coming future; however, the core of the magazine will stay the same and we will continue to amplify student voices.
The Charger Bulletin Magazine is run by students, for students. If you have an investigative piece you are passionate about we would love to read it. If you have a piece about art, film or culture we would be equally delighted to read it. As always, we are eager to read all submissions and want to expand the number of students that write for us and vary the perspectives in our magazine.
Our mission is to bring the students of the University of New Haven uncensored, engaging and thought-provoking articles that reflect life and our campus. We want to be on the pulse of the culture (campus-wide and media-wide) in an attempt at furthering our missions and diversifying the topics we write about. As a publication we hope to continue to evolve and improve with the current state of digital media. This means we will retain the four sections as they are (investigative, interpretative, column, photojournalism), but potentially restructure into more decisive sections (art, culture, lifestyle, critique) as we get more authors and more articles submitted.
While we aim to amplify students’ voices and perspectives, articles will not be published if they breach our ethics policy or are explicit or implicit denigration of racialized and/or marginalized groups. We do not commend violent rhetoric and will not be complicit in the furthering of harmful ideology.
With that being said, we are open to continually making the magazine better which is why we encourage Letters to the Editor. If you would like to send us a letter, please email email@example.com.
We are eagerly looking forward to the next year of publication.
Sankofa Benzo and the Editorial Staff
